Ehm; this has been explained before, plus that if you grok darcs you 
wouldn't ask this..
Darcs works without version numbers since there is no ordering in the 
revisions resorting is no problem, later inserting one is also not a 
problem.  Hence; any numbering scheme usable for humans will be a 
complicated thing that will only cause inconsistencies and annoyance.

In a nutshell :)
